NFL Having Record Injuries of Achilles Tendons Already!

The NFL holdout is finally over and the fans are finally ready for some football.  Unfortunately, many NFL players are not.  Only several weeks into the NFL training camps there have already been 10 season ending Achilles tendon ruptures.  Injuries like these are not unexpected in a group of athletes who did not have consistent organized workouts during the offseason.  On average a typical NFL full season has only 8 Achilles tendon ruptures, and only 2/3rd's of them return to play and almost always play fewer snaps than before their injuries.

Remember Dan Marino? An Achilles tendon rupture ended his career!

Achilles tendon injuries typically occur in an already diseased tendon, but lack of consistent workouts and conditioning can lead to early muscle fatigue and tendon failure, even in healthy tendons.  Makes you think that even if a pro athlete can't be a weekend warrior maybe we should not be one either.

If you are experiecing pain, stiffnes or swelling in your Achilles tendon, better to get it checked out by one of our doctors than to become a statistic!

If you have been injured due to someone's negligence ,it would best to mind all your actions because some insurance companies will do anything to save the money from compensating your injury. Best to always sought the best ones in town.
